This is really a hotel in a very nice location with a very good Pool area and Garden. The room size is ok and you have A nice view from all of them. The beach is directly behind the Garden and there are Some good Restaurants in walking distance. We have been here several time now. I understand that providing Pool towels is an effort and not all customers handle them carefully, return them etc. This Year there were no more towels at the Pool. Some days one per Person was Provider in the room. Most days we had to get them from the reception - waiting sometimes up to 20 minutes because of a Check Out / Check in queue. ... Some days we had to wait even longer because house keeping had to bring fresh pool towels first. I really suggest to try an improvement here. Unfortunately we had a big childrens birthday party at one sunday. The pool was crowded with 30 and more People permanent for hours. The Kids were really loud and the splashing water did even wet us lying Outsider. Normally No Glas is allowed around the pool ... but there were bottles and Glasses all around. IT would have been really nice if we would have been informed before that it might be A good idea to Plan something else than a pool Day.

Great location - great staff - great food! Parking available for hotel guests. Right on beach with access to beach and ocean. We stayed on 2nd level with beautiful view of ocean. Very close to Barcelona airport!

Went for a day at beach but weather did not co-operate. Beach was beautiful with easy access from hotel. Also pool was beautiful with high end lounges and cabanas. Pool bar was closed because of weather but restaurant open concept allowed us to enjoy a great meal and drinks while taking in the sea air and views. Not close to city at all. Close to airport however taxi ride almost cost us the same fare as coming from Barcelona - some sort of taxes and also charged for pre booking! Ripped off for sure. Rooms clean and very nice bathroom but no safe in my room. Rooms very spacious. We had three in our room and we're overcharged for this. Staff was pleasant but sparse - hotel served its purpose not there fault weather was bad.

Here in Barcelona for a couple of days but wanted to stay away from the hustle and bustle of town. This hotel is only a short 15 min taxi ride from the airport, and Barcelona central, it's in a quiet location, the superior room was large and comfortable, one can hear the waves rolling at night with the windows open. A great Breakfast, on the terrace overlooking the pool out to sea, a slight sea breeze while sipping on your coffee - highly recommended

Stayed 1 night after returning from a med cruise on Tuesday. Newer minimalist hotel on the beach with a pool. Hotel is very relaxing and quiet. Check in quick and efficient. Arrived at 9:30am and was promptly given a room with internet from status with Marriott credit card. Hotel was at maybe 40% occupancy. Room was clean and modern for $120 a night. Forgot international charger so for a $20 deposit I was able to borrow one for the night. No convenience options to purchase sunblock, snacks, etc at hotel. Sent us a couple of blocks to a mini market. Area was nice and safe. Had a tasty snack at a creperie a couple of doors from the market. At the pool there were 4 cabanas and many loungers. There was a bar by the pool however it was closed. It was during the week and not high season. Given a button to push when we wanted beverage service while at the pool. Access to the beach through a gate. Sandy beach with a few restaurants scattered on it. Wish the hotel offered loungers on the beach. There is a beach restaurant a block down that does though. Had a tasty lunch with pitcher of sangria at it. Ate dinner at the hotel since we were wiped out. Restaurant was small and didn't have a full bar. Food was average with pizza, sandwiches, burgers, salads and such.

Just 10 minutes by taxi from Barcelona airport you can find a hotel that is located directly on a long sandy beach, far away from noise and stress. I loved the location of this property. It's a very good 4* hotel. Very friendly staff at the reception, bar and housekeeping. Spotlessly clean. Well organized. The rooms are not very big but the feeling to be in there is excellent. Very comfy beds, huge TV, nice bathroom with designer sink made of glass only (loved it!). There is a big window that you can open completely (excellently planned by the architect!), and it offers you a view on a big park which is very well kept. There is a nice bar, an inviting pool area with all the facilities you could desire, and a direct access to a public, immense beach. I loved my stay here, it was relaxing and inspiring, and the staff was very helpful and friendly. Well done!

My wife and I stayed here for one night before our flight from Barcelona to New York. If you want to stat near the airport, this hotel is a very good choice. It is a modern Marriott Hotel. The rooms are large, well appointed and very clean. The restaurant is satisfactory. My only complaint about this hotel is that they do not have a shuttle bus between the airport terminals and the hotel. Leaving the airport by taxi there is a minimum fare of 25 Euros (which is about what the metered fair is). It is only a ten minute taxi ride, but it would be a real benefit if the hotel had a shuttle.

Great location close to the beach. We found a steakhouse (Victor's) that had great service and changed our opinion of the hospitality near Barcelona. A good amount of restaurants in the area. They have a great breakfast, look for the breakfast package option.

After a terrible experience at Barcelona City North we were lucky to find the AC Gava marca Marriott hotel . This hotel is on the beach great area beautiful property excellent staff. All employees are great starting from the GM, Mar the Front office Manager and Jason they treat you like family . The breakfast it was very good . It is a hotel that if I return to Barcelona is the place I will stay

You want to relax?, no busy avenues, not a huge crowd...appart from everything but vlose enough for easy access. We walked around the area and the locals are friendly. Not too many places around to eat, but the ones you will find are excellent. Beach atmosphere and a great staff that will do anything to make your stay enjoyable!
